set up an APN on an iPhone


On an iPhone, an APN can only be set up if your service provider permits it. Some service providers only permit you to set up an APN if you are abroad.

Follow these instructions to see if your iPhone can set up an APN:

  • Activate Settings > Mobile Data/Cellular > Mobile Data Options > Mobile Data Network.

  • Write the APN's name now.

Click Reset Settings to restore the APN settings.

If following these instructions did not resolve the issue, it's possible that your provider has restricted creating an APN due to security concerns. By getting in touch with your network provider directly, you might be able to address this issue.
